Heard on the radio: "The UK produces the best Snowdrops. They are hardy, pleasing to the eye, have character, need handling with care and are hand-picked. They are in a class of their own and have associations, clubs and festivals nationwide.' So there we have it - it's official!

Still no news from the Provost Marshal (RAF) or the RAFPA Executive regarding any plans to produce a hard copy commemorative journal to celebrate the centenary of the RAF Police on 1 April 2018, so here you go, this is my effort and offering to you all.

And now available as a real book from Amazon as well as kindle.

Hi Everybody, it's been decided to publish an 8 page extra in the May 2018 issue to celebrate the Centenary of the RAF Police. As you know we did produce a publication to celebrate 90 years so quite a lot of material was used to produce that booklet. One idea that's been suggested is to concentrate on conflict areas the RAFP have been involved in, WW2 Berlin Airlift, Korea, Cyprus, Egypt. Aden, Falklands, N Ireland, Malaya etc, using unpublished photographs and individuals accounts/memories. I'm asking the membership if they can help, do you have photographs suitable for publication along with a short account of any incidents. If so please send to me (The Editor), your contribution can help make this celebratory publication a first class unique document. regards, Mitch

I'm making a request for photographs for considered inclusion in the May 2018 Centenary Supplement. Obviously I already have a selection but would like more choice in the 2005 -to date timeline, although all dates are always welcome.‘ If you can send electronically that's great, if you need to send by mail, after scanning they will be returned to you. Whatever you send is not guaranteed to be published, I'm looking for the largest collection so the most interesting and informative photos are published to give a pictorial '100 years' of RAF Police service, regards, Mitch

The beauty of the Suns Energy Solar Panel Funding better than free solar panel scheme is that you can obtain solar panels and then use the government incentive known as the Feed-In-Tariff to fund the installation.

With this incentive, it is possible to achieve combined earnings & savings in excess of £30,000 over 20 years.

Applying now will enable you to lock in your Feed-In-Tariff rate which will increase over time with the rate of inflation. The government funding available for renewable energies such as solar is limited and will soon run out.

TO SECURE YOUR FEED-IN-TARIFF AND EARN TAX FREE INCOME AS WELL AS GENERATING FREE ELECTRICITY - 

Contact the Webmaster on webmaster@rafpa.com who will pass on your details to arrange a free no obligation survey by your local energy assessor

As many of you will know I was a founder member of the RAF Police Association but I stopped paying my membership this year because of the way it is being run by a few. I was very proud of my membership and 3 of the proudest moments were when I was made a Life Vice President in 2002 and awarded the Alan Rusling Award twice. If the few get their way I will no longer be a Life Vice President after next year so I thought I would just celebrate it and the two Awards here.
